    I have informed a member of the SitePoint team and the matter will be dealt with immediately. Thank you very much for pointing it out!

    The thing is, you can see where he has used the wrong colour at the top to cover bits up!

    These guys are natural - idiots.

    Imagine if they got any clients! Hah! "I'll design a website for you, but don't get perturbed if it looks a lot like someone else's website" - hah!

    They're charging $300 for that stuff. What a bunch of turkeys.

    It is too bad his address and telephone number is listed.

    He lists a number of "previous clients" on his site. See if you can find out more about those sites. They could have been copied from various other sites (it looks like he doesn't have any skill at all).

    I think what reall takes the cake is this.

    The contents of this webpage are copyright © 1998-2001
    Dayspring Internet. Ltd. All Rights Reserved
    This site http://www.goprestonsburg.com/ looks reall familiar.

    We caught someone stealing one of our design's once, the idiot forgot to take out the usage tracker, all of a sudden we where getting clients visiting a completly different URL.

    I say, if you have to plagurise one ones, you don't belong in the industry.

    Sure everyone see somthing on some site/s they like and will use a similar idea in a project but this is going over the top.

    Also, the #top link in the bottom right of the page always goes to index.html.

    Anyways, SP's design is for a more content-oriented site. It doesn't really "work" on a design/hosting site.

    I hope that all of his sites can be shut down. I assume he is hosting them all on the same account. I'd hate to think that his other sites would be allowed to continue their operation, when his entire company is based on fraudulent foundations.

    Borrowing ideas is one thing ... having the same color scheme is another ... BUT FLAT OUT SAVING SOMEONE'S SITE TO YOUR HARD DRIVE ONLY TO CHANGE THE LINKS!?!?!?

    Although, my first design of an epock.com logo resembled that of epoch.com, but I'd never seen the site!

    This guy is truly an idiot .

    I thought the Go Prestonburg site looked too slick to be put together by a guy like this, so I did some searching looking for the generic graphics he used, guessing he wouldn't change their names if he didn't have to.

    He's ripped off City Search !!

    Ticket Master will be so flattered.

    His other site, www.ekymovies.com , seems fairly simple. So he might have actually made it himself. Also, there aren't any generic images for which to search. So it's a bit harder to find who he copied it from.

    Maybe he'll check his logs and see all the requests refered from this page - it's happened before.
